‘We have used floating dreams before and this was a return trip. The boat has all you need for a comfortable 12/14day break. The new sofa is a welcome addition following a day stood up and doing locks. Martin is helpful and friendly, explaining all you need to know before embarking on your holiday. We had a few electrical issues during our break but Martin was always on the end of the phone, and quickly arranged a marine engineer to meet us and rectify the problem. The customer service from this small company is outstanding and would teach many larger firms a thing or too in this regard. Would I use floating dreams again. Yes. There are still many routes to explore in this wonderful area of the UK.'
Great weekend with the family. Weather perfect. With the comfort and easy handling of the Adele Marie we had the most enjoyable weekend.
A fantastic boat hired to us by really great people, we were confident of support if required and the training/handover was excellent. The Llangollen Canal has a lot to offer, with both the fabulous wildlife and that chap Telford knew a thing or two! The aqueducts and tunnels did not disappoint. We had just the most relaxed and wonderful time.
Narrow boats are a holiday in themselves. There is always lots to do on the boat with piloting, mooring, locks and pubs. It is a great way to spend a holiday in the outdoors but still with plenty of luxury. Adele Marie had all that you would want. Excellent galley, shower and toilet, comfortable beds, television and central heating as well as the chance to see the countryside at a slow pace and lots of interesting stuff on the way.
Comfortable boat, lots of stunning scenery, fun at the locks and over the spectacular aqueduct. Plenty of good places to stop.
Would definitely recommend it.
Overall my husband,myself and our 8 year old grandson enjoyed our first canal boat holiday on the Adele Marie. Martin and Anne were very welcoming and the added extras , scones,jam,milk etc were much appreciated
It was hard work at times at the locks and gates but others were happy to help
As there were just 2 adults on board we did not make Llangollen and were conscious of the further we went the further we had to come back and as we had the boat for just 1 week getting to the Chirk Aquaduct was quite an achievement for beginners
Would we do it again. Yes but with another couple
Improvements. Boat is a bit tired and needs some fabric maintenance. Fly spray is a necessity to get rid of the midgies A bread in would be a useful addition
Overall the Adele Marie was very comfortable and we did enjoy our time aboard
